Blogger's Block

I've been having a bit of Blogger's block lately. I started to write something today and found I couldn't. The mistake I often make while doing this is trying to force what I write which generally results in a lower quality entry than I might otherwise have written.

I could go into the writing process here, but I think others in the Outer Blogosphere are better qualified to do it and Sierra Sage runs a site dedicated to it. I plan on signing up for her workshops one day, but I'd host her exercises somewhere else. I have a slight confession to make. I don't read fiction posted on blogs as a general rule. It's not that the fiction is bad it's just that most of it doesn't interest me and I'm reading the blogs for a different reason. I like to know what their thoughts on the topics they blog about are.

It seems that I am a point in my life where I have a lot more confidence than I used to. Whether or not this is warranted is a different matter but it has caused a shift in my outlook at least. I tend to spend a little less time thinking about problems now and more time implement solutions. Unfortunately it's showing here and I seem to have less energy to put into my writing or it could be perhaps that I'm devoting more of it to the book I am writing and not really getting anywhere on it.

I hope this condition ends soon and I can get back to where I was before with at least some interesting ideas, but for now I seem to be stuck.

So you're not pleased with how your book is going so far? How come?

It's a combination of things I think including getting stuck. It's a cool idea I think, I'm just having problems with the execution.
